This link may not open, but if it does it’s a fascinating report of SouCal firing Lane Kiffin, decided once and for all during Saturday’s game at Arizona State, and delivered to him in person at LAX by Haden personally as the team bus with Kiffin’s luggage went on back to campus.
But I vowed no more football. Lied and got caught.
Haden face-fired Kiffin honorably and manly, unlike PennState firing Joe Paterno, also necessary, but shamefully, cowardly, disgracefully by phone.
Still chafing from watching UCF rise toward greatness in the Sunshine State and dreading a once obscure AAC nonentity rising and shining as UFla, which for one ludicrously embarrassing week last season stood at #1 by some computer glitch, dangles at #18. It’s bad word time, and I’ve got ‘em, being a naval officer a lot longer than a priest.
But why be surprised at AAC UCF: there’s AAC Louisville at #7 and why should UCF not be ranked before the season is over, in fact UCF has six votes in the current AP poll. It’s the greeneyed monster living beyond an age when the two Florida teams were UF and Miami; the Seminoles, a girls’ school when I was at Florida, are invariably at least neck and neck and often above the Gators, and even my mother switched from Gators to Seminoles. Next the Knights? The Who? The @\#%&%&$#@# UCF Knights.
And what were those tall black and gold things their forty jillion screaming fans were waving Saturday? Next, black and gold vuvuzelas.
Speaking of Kiffin. Incredibly, after Saturday’s game against South Carolina, some UCF fan sent a “Fire O’Leary email?” What an idiot. Too bad fans can’t be fired.
Why diddle about football when America spends more on war than on Lazarus? I should talk about cars or something. OK, this is it once and for all, no more CFB.
Remember the Wide Track Pontiac?
